leader, harry reid has not come out and endorsed the president's proposals. tom, also not coming out, how is the president going to be able to get this legislation through congress if you can't seem to get some top-ranking democrats onboard. >> that's the biggest challenge. harry reid has said generally, he supportses the conversation about it, but his aides made it clear he's not taking the lead on this one and he expects to see other senators who have made issues of gun violence and the law enforcement their main calling card on capitol hill and that's patrick leahy and ann fine stine and chuck schumer from new york. we have 23, democrats running for re-election and most of them come from midwestern, western states. they have strong, rural communities and therefore are a lot more open to maintaining gun rights and so you will have a lot of these democrats who will be very nervous voting for any big changes and harry reid is one of them. the national rifle association stayed out of the reelection race and he owes it to them to perhaps temper the debate and not necessarily let all of this
